Gallery: Our Favorite #MyBirthGear Submissions

On March 27th we asked folks to participate in the #MyBirthGear Challenge to gather some of the most obscure and interesting pieces of equipment listed on Reverb from the year they were born. Not only did we learn about some the wildest gear made to date, but we also were reminded of the dedication required to build such intricate instruments.

We received an overwhelming amount of great responses and have highlighted some of our favorites below. To take part in the #MyBirthGear Challenge or, to view some the coolest gear submissions, visit our Facebook thread here.
